Disclosure’s You & Me must’ve made Chaz Bundick feel a bit left out, because the American chief of chillwave came out saying “what about Moi?” with his remix of the London duo’s sensual garage jam.
Toro y Moi opens with a trembling chord that persists throughout the track and serves as the spine from which he hangs his accomplished vocal chopping. He teases the familiar and expected chorus a few times before letting it loose, which builds a level of tension not normally found in a tune this utterly chill. Toro continues filling all the airy space he’s created by dicing up the verses and building up into two really smooth breakdowns.
The original is due out with the rest of Disclosure’s debut full-length, Settle. Although the full LP reportedly leaked today, the official release is set for June 3. Check back for a full review from LT3, and in the meantime, enjoy Baauer’s interesting take on the same jam.
